Per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) and accepted for purchase pursuant to the applicable Offer.

In connection with the Newmont Notes Offer, Newmont is soliciting consents (the “Newmont Notes Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the Newmont Notes to certain proposed amendments (the “Newmont Notes Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture governing the Newmont Notes (the “Newmont Indenture”) to (i) eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default under the Newmont Indenture and (ii) shorten the minimum notice period for the optional redemption of the Newmont Notes from 30 calendar days to two (2) business days (the “Newmont Notes Consents”).

In connection with the Goldcorp Notes Offer, Newmont is soliciting consents (the “Goldcorp Notes Consent Solicitation” and, together with the Newmont Notes Consent Solicitation, the “Consent Solicitations” and each, a “Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the Goldcorp Notes to a proposed amendment (the “Goldcorp Notes Proposed Amendment” and, together with the Newmont Notes Proposed Amendments, the “Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture governing the Goldcorp Notes (the “Goldcorp Indenture” and, together with the Newmont Indenture, the “Indentures”) to shorten the minimum notice period for the optional redemption of the Goldcorp Notes from 30 calendar days to two (2) business days (the “Goldcorp Notes Consent” and, together with the Newmont Notes Consents, the “Consents”).

Each Offer and Consent Solicitation for a series of Notes is separate and distinct and is not conditioned upon the consummation of the other Offer or Consent Solicitation or adoption of the Proposed Amendments in respect of the other series of Notes or obtaining the requisite Consent with respect to the other series of Notes or the completion of the Offer for the other series of Notes.

The Offers and the Consent Solicitations are subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions as described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated December 6, 2021 (the “Offer to Purchase”), including the issuance and sale of debt securities by Newmont on terms satisfactory to the Company that will generate net proceeds in an amount that is sufficient to finance the purchase of the Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase on or prior to the Early Settlement Date (as defined below).

The Offers and Consent Solicitations will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on January 4, 2022, unless extended by the Company in its sole discretion (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Time”) or earlier terminated. In order to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration (as described below) for tendered Notes, holders must validly tender their Notes and deliver Consents at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 17, 2021 (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the “Early Tender Deadline”), and not validly withdraw their tendered Notes or revoke the related Consents before such time.

The consideration (the “Newmont Notes Total Consideration”) offered per $1,000 principal amount of Newmont Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Newmont Notes Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread for the Newmont Notes specified above plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified above as quoted on the applicable page on the Bloomberg Bond Trader FIT4 series of pages at 10:00 a.m., New York City time on December 17, 2021.

The consideration (the “Goldcorp Notes Total Consideration” and, together with the Newmont Notes Total Consideration, the “Total Consideration”) offered per $1,000 principal amount of Goldcorp Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Goldcorp Notes Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to the fixed spread for the Goldcorp Notes specified above plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified above as quoted on the applicable page on the Bloomberg Bond Trader FIT4 series of pages at 10:00 a.m., New York City time on December 17, 2021.

Holders of any Notes that are validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and that are accepted for purchase will receive the applicable Total Consideration.

Holders of Newmont Notes that are validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline but prior to the Expiration Time and that are accepted for purchase will receive the Newmont Notes Total Consideration minus an early tender payment of $50 (the “Newmont Notes Early Tender Payment”). As used herein, the Newmont Notes Total Consideration minus the Newmont Notes Early Tender Payment is referred to as the “Newmont Notes Tender Offer Consideration.”

Holders of Goldcorp Notes that are validly tendered after the Early Tender Deadline but prior to the Expiration Time and that are accepted for purchase will receive the Goldcorp Notes Total Consideration minus an early tender payment of $50 (the “Goldcorp Notes Early Tender Payment”). As used herein, (i) the Goldcorp Notes Total Consideration minus the Goldcorp Notes Early Tender Payment is referred to as the “Goldcorp Notes Tender Offer Consideration” and (ii) the Newmont Notes Tender Offer Consideration and the Goldcorp Notes Tender Offer Consideration is referred to as the “Tender Offer Consideration.”

In addition to the Total Consideration or the Tender Offer Consideration, as applicable, all holders of Notes accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase from the last interest payment date up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date or promptly following the Expiration Time (the “Final Settlement Date”), as applicable, payable on the Early Settlement Date or the Final Settlement Date, as applicable.

The Early Tender Deadline is the last time for Holders to tender Notes in order to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration. Payment for the Notes that are validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and that are accepted for purchase will be made on the date referred to as the “Early Settlement Date.” Newmont expects that the Early Settlement Date will be December 20, 2021 or as promptly as practicable thereafter.

Notes that are not tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Offer will remain obligations of Newmont or Goldcorp, as applicable. There is no requirement in the Indentures or otherwise that Newmont or Goldcorp redeem any Notes, and unless redeemed, such Notes will continue to remain outstanding. Newmont and Goldcorp currently intend to send a notice of redemption to redeem any Notes outstanding after the Early Settlement Date.

This press release does not constitute a notice of redemption under the optional redemption provisions of the Indentures. Any notice of redemption of the Notes will be delivered pursuant to separate notices of redemption delivered in accordance with the terms of the applicable Indenture.

The complete terms and conditions of the Offers and Consent Solicitations are set forth in the Offer to Purchase that is being sent to holders of the Notes.
